Because Blogger's "Adult warning" often goes into a perpetual loop (isn't working properly), I will be making all new posts at my WordPress blog. You can follow it even if you do not have a WordPress Account. There're also my Twitter and my Tumblr blog, my Facebook and my Google+ page and my group.
(Update: Blogger hasn't fixed its problem with the "adult warning". Will go back to posting at my WordPress blog)

Edward Gorey

A great genius: sly, clever, cynical, perceptive, and very very funny. Also bizarre and peculiar. Wish I'd known him.  The Wikipedia article suggests he was asexual rather than, say, bisexual, but his work has many  references to "well-hung young men".   He grew up at a time when to be gay was evil ( a time which the Christian-Fascists want to bring back) so maybe it was easier to be asexual.  I know that that's what I did for many years.
